Border, D 110502-1
« on: September 02, 2011, 04:07:16 PM »


A splendid rifle in great shape, and one which is dated. This gun by Daniel Border is an outanding example of what a Bedford County rifle is. It exhibits fine workmanship in wood, metal work, composition, and architecture. The patchbox and the lock stand out as especially representative of the school. This beautifully made, graceful rifle retains good condition and deserves a place in the Library.
Very nice rifle with no obvious restoration.  An excellent example of a Bedford County rifle  for the library.
As good as Bedford Rifle get... though less adorned than some, perhaps more artistically pleasing.
This is a very distinctive Bedford rifle with its classic Bedford patchbox, tear drop inlays behind the side facings, etc. It is a fine example of a classic Bedford rifle for the virtual museum.
